Yes, women are medically different from men and have specific health needs. One example is that, on average, women have a longer life expectancy than men, but they are also at higher risk for certain health problems, such as breast cancer, osteoporosis and autoimmune diseases.
Some of the most important nutrients for women are iron, calcium, vitamin D and folic acid. Iron is important for the formation of red blood cells and can be a common deficiency in women due to menstrual bleeding. Calcium and vitamin D are important for bone health, while folic acid is recommended during pregnancy to prevent neural tube defects.
